Aristide Claims US Forces Kidnapped Him


Californian Democrat Maxine Waters says that the former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide claims that he was kidnapped by the US military and diplomats and that he did not resign as officially reported.

Walters says that Aristide insists "The world must know it was a coup. That I was kidnapped. That I was forced out. That's what happened. I did not resign. I did not go willingly. I was forced to go."

The ousted leader is currently in transit in the Central African Republic capital of Bangui. Randall Robinson, former head of TransAfrica, has come forward with similar allegations.

  yeah sure..  
I'm sure he was forced out.
When I stub my foot, it was the US governments fault as well.

  An 'about face'?  
I'm sure the US soldiers really had to pull him out by the arms...

  Already changing story  
Aristide has already started to modify the story, now he claims it was both Haitians and Americans that urged him to leave before there was further violence. No 'kidnapping' involved. The Black Caucus are all racist anti-american hatemongers.
